Inspired by Morrison's claim that vegetarians should spice up their Christmas dinner with a Naice 3 Fish Roast from their Fishminger.


Tomatoes and cucumber arre fruit.

Roobarb is a dog.

Okra is bleurgh.

You must eat a doughnut without lickling your lips.

Aspargus and cutlery are not friends.

Marathons were far superior to Snickers.

You can't eat a doughnut without licking your lips.

Alcohol and pudding do not mix.

GrimmaTheNome Mon 17-Dec-12 09:24:37

I don't think so, long overdue. grin

"Knowledge is knowing the tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting in your fruit salad."

I can't think of anything I'm particularly pedantic about TBH, except for some items not being finger food whatever DD may think to the contrary.

>Alcohol and pudding do not mix.

Untrue if the alcohol is part of the pudding though.

You're on fire this morning Chaos.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 17-Dec-12 09:27:32

But its wrong grimma. Alcohol should only be served in a glass, and pudding in a bowl. You can't mix the two, its just grim.

GrimmaTheNome Mon 17-Dec-12 09:38:39

Its probably significant you've 'bah...humbug' in your name at the moment grin
There are lots of classic desserts which have alcohol as an integral component.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 17-Dec-12 09:41:11

and they're all horrible wink

GrimmaTheNome Mon 17-Dec-12 09:45:51

There's no accounting for lack of taste. wink Your personal preference doesn't make something wrong.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 17-Dec-12 09:54:11

grin What makes yours right?

StNiChaolas Mon 17-Dec-12 09:55:41

Oh the irony of Chaos starting a "pedanrty" thread! [wunk]

HaveYourselfAMardyLittleXmas Mon 17-Dec-12 10:09:57

I want to do some lickling.

StNiChaolas Mon 17-Dec-12 10:10:18

Only 3?

Gravy should not be made with Bisto.

Turkeys should not be procured at Asda.

Yorkshire pudding is an accompaniment for beef - it has no place in a turkey Christmas dinner

HaveYourselfAMardyLittleXmas Mon 17-Dec-12 10:15:52

yy to rare beef and lamb.

Carveries are the work of the devil.

Ham should not be shiny.

Cheese should not taste of soap.

Soup is wrong in a powdered format.

HaveYourselfAMardyLittleXmas Mon 17-Dec-12 10:20:12

Mass produced Christmas dinners are rarely tasty (soggy roasties and reheated brussels anyone?).

MotherOfNations Mon 17-Dec-12 10:25:13

I love okra, especially in curry.

Allalonenow Mon 17-Dec-12 10:29:30

Chips must be served with mayonnaise.
Bacon sandwich must be made with unbuttered white bread.
Boiled eggs must have runny yolks.
Hard boiled eggs must not have a horrid grey ring.
Mashed potatoes must not have any lumps.

Not that I am at all fussy....

TunipTheVegedude Mon 17-Dec-12 10:32:23

Sorry Battlefront, have to disagree on that one. My Yorkshire dad believes in Yorkshire puddings being served with any roast dinner (though they don't usually bother for Xmas, but they could). It's a regional thing. The pudding was meant to take the edge off your appetite before you get to the meat.

Cheese should not have fruit in it.
